Find Sandals Antigua Resort & Spa St. John’s…All-encompassing. Till we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and winced. We could not really understand why anybody would want to spend their getaway holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you wish to get out to see things and consume the local food? But with an invitation to experience both Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau and Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, off we went to see what all the hype had to do with.
Back from nearly 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can state that we totally enjoyed our stays at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a number of things that could be improved, however overall the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in an excellent way. We ‘d certainly think about going complete once again and our Sandals Resorts review shows you why you ought to too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no restrictions on dining, which activities are included and that you have your pick of exceptional alcohol. There are extra charges, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a couple of things such as spa services, off-resort excursions and renting a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a stringent no tipping policy, so it’s totally unneeded to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Antigua Resort & Spa St. John’s
After our first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we purchased a lattes and presented our room secret to the barista only to be told it wasn’t essential, I locked my purse in the safe. We actually needed our essential cards exclusively to gain access to our room. After days of simply appearing for our supper booking and simply leaving when we were done, I nearly forgot my purse in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we remained in Club Sandals level rooms that were embellished likewise in British Colonial style. I like the restroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more because it had a different tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did discover the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the cosmetics mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level indicates extra visitor features such being satisfied on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in that included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the property (which is actually extremely useful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to aid with dinner bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge likewise provides a variety of board games and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is available throughout the entire property.
Service at Sandals resorts is typically outstanding by Caribbean standards, and that holds true at this Barbados property.
